Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m ET on ABC.

Kyle MacLachlan joins 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' as Skye's father

Since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. first premiered, the show has been hinting at the identity of Skye’s parents. It’s been an ongoing topic of discussion between May and Coulson, and one that climaxed in the season 1 finale, when Raina handed an unknown person a photo of Skye claiming that she’d found his daughter.

Although we don’t know how he will fit into the context of the show, Skye’s father will definitely enter the mix in season 2. Sources confirm that Kyle MacLachlan has been cast in the role, though there’s no word yet on how long he’ll be sticking around.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m ET on ABC.
